Teaching since:
August 2012

I have been around the piano all of my life. My mom is an elementary music teacher and my dad has been a professional organist for most of his life. I studied Classical piano at Bethany University in Scotts Valley, CA and received my Bachelor of Arts in Music Education. I have also studied Jazz piano at the University of Nevada Reno for a year at a Master's level. I spent the last 3 years before moving to Portland working professionally as the Music Director for a church in Nevada and have experience touring and playing all over California/Nevada. I have tutored people in piano and in music theory before as well. I am an actively gigging musician and play regularly.

I led the music department for 3 years at Crosswinds. I performed with and led the music team for 4 services a week during this time. I led and sang from the keyboard and gained experience working with bands. I also arranged music for the weekly services.

Piano · In studio

My son (4 year old) and I both enjoy taking lessons from Nicolaus, he challenges us but is very concerned with our musical enjoyment.
